    We went on vacation camping for a week by Niagara falls! And none of my ducklings died in the care of our neighbors :yesss: but I noticed that one of my cayuga ducks looks to have angel wing on one wing and my black swedish looks to have droop wing on both sides. I've read the other post on here about the subject. But a few things I couldn't find were, how many days should I keep the angel wing wrapped, and should I keep it wrapped 24/7? How often should I replace the wrap? And should I isolate the duck for the time that he is wrapped? Do I need to do anything for the droop wing? I'm gonna cut the feed with alfalfa pellets I think, or is there a better way to reduce the protein so the other birds dont get the same problem. Thanks in advance!:bow

    I'm actually not seeing angel wing really except flight feathers coming in..Can you post better pictures..Drop wing actually corrects itself. It's just the weight of the flight feathers and weak wings. With time they get used to the weight.

    The left wing of the Cayuga does look like it could be angel wing.
